We've Been Chosen!

We didn't think it would be happening this soon. It hasn't even been a month yet since our special needs paperwork was filed. But Julie about had a heart attack Thursday morning when our social worker called and said that a child has been assigned to us. Even our social worker was surprised that it was so fast. It's a 2-year old boy in China with special needs. He has a cleft palate. We will give you more information and pictures when we are able.

Cheerios for Jesus

This past Sunday morning, Lily and I are having Cheerios with Reese's Puffs mixed in. We do this to cut the sugar content while still enjoying a little bit of "fun" cereal.

Then came the following exchange.

Lily: "I no like Cheerios. Why put Cheerios in, too?"

Me: "Because Cheerios are good for you."

Lily: "Why?"

Me: "Because they have oats in them. Oats are good for your heart."

Lily: "I eat Cheerios, go down into my heart, Jesus eat my Cheerios."
